( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Brethern and cistern, I petition you. My forehead is much flatter than it was and my monitor is cracked.

I have an object where $self->things is an array. I would like to fill XXXXXXX in the code below with the name of the current $self->things and then do a query on each things name.

{ my $self = shift; my $slobbo = "select * from bleh where whatever = "; my $connection = $self->connection; foreach ($self->things) { my $name = new thang($_); my $thangsname = XXXXXXX my $sth = $connection->connection->prepare( $slobbo.$thangsname ); } }

I have tried everything that I can think of. I have used tye's References Quick Reference, which I found wonderfully enlightening. Every time I try to view that concatenated SQL query, the name of thing is missing.

Please help.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
